Bomber in Santa Barbara Whole Foods. This is about as you can get from a Kolsch. Clean, crisp, refreshing. The honey is not overpowering but the touch of sweetness from the honey is a definite "value add." Well played, gentlemen.

Smells good. Zesty and sweet. Tastes light with the hint of honey easy to detect. Smooth, not overpowering or underwhelming. Good beer for a hot day.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from The Hop - Beacon, 9/22/13
Aroma: The nose is mild and a little sweet, honey is there, but light, mild lemon and yeasty notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a quick dissipating, bubbly, white head and mild lace
Flavor: The taste is light up-front, some sweetness and maltiness comes through mid-end palate
Palate: The body is light, feels a bit thin and overly carbonated, but not a terrible feel, short duration
I saw this big ole’ bright yellow bomber and figured I might as well try this one. Unfortunately, this beer is not all that exciting. It feels a little dull and forgettable. I was really pulling through my nose to get much of anything out of the aroma. There’s nothing offensive here, it’s just a dull one. Too bad, I was looking for a little more. Honestly, I wonder if this bottle is just past its prime or if this beer just lacks flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Zesty lemon aroma. Light golden color with a short lived white champagne head. Lightly tart lemon with a kinda thick consistency where the honey should be but is lacking. Good but I really wish it was better with more honey.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle. Clear pee yellow color with small head. Aroma is indeed honey and light pilsner/pale malts. Flavor is identical to the nose. Grainy texture. Light body with a sweet honey finish. Real simple and drinkable. Decent session type brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped 750 from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma suggests some sort of dilute aftershave. Fruit? Med body or nearly. Flavor starts sort of sweet, but then a lot of grassy hop stops that. Followed by some breadiness. Seem to be getting honey on my lips. Quite surprisingly drinkable. Honey from hops. What fortunate bees.

Pours a soft straw blonde with one finger of white head. Nose is soft bready malts with a light sweetness and grassy hop notes. Clean flavor with a light malt sweetness and crisp grassy hop character. Mild and clean with a touch of bitterness and some soft fruity notes. Very easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a light and crisp beer. It’s dry and refreshing, but I was hoping for more of a honey taste which wasn’t as evident as the bottle suggests. A bit sweeter than a normal kolsch though.
